I've been trying really hard to share the joy of camp craft with with my children. We don't live in the woods like I did as a child, and in some ways I feel like they've been cheated. My love of the outdoors was almost unavoidable, but if I'm going to instill this in my kids then I'm going to have to work hard to make sure they get those experiences.
One way I'm trying to do that is by creating a camp experience right in our back yard. I'm turning it into a place where I can teach them some basic outdoor/camping skills, and also experiment with repurposing household items to suit the needs of the camp.
In this video you'll see one of my simple coffee can stoves. The small stove, combined with a small cast iron skillet, makes a great way to cook up some camp burgers for my friends and I.
